I will admit I was wrong on this one. I didn’t think they’d launch with ILL since this is a brand new ride and having two different virtual options (BG + ILL) seems like a recipe for disaster (I thought they’d wait at least two weeks of VQ only) But I guess they decided the ride (and the system?!?) is reliable enough to dive right in. Good luck to all who are trying to ride during the opening weeks!
I’ll report my experience 6/17. I’ll be trying to get an ILL for this and Remy and a LL for Test Track all at 7am. I’ll try out BG1. Wish me luck!
This is my exact plan for 6/21…
Cant wait for reports on this! I’m spending an evening at Epcot in August and we will be on a plane that morning. I assume my best bet will be to buy an ILL for an evening slot.
I personally think it’s a bad idea. It’s going to be so popular, it will basically be like two lotteries, one you have to pay for, one you don’t. They need a cool off period before they introduce ILL.
But at least Liners will be able to use BG1 to get it.
I wonder if they are considering the extensive previews the cool off period?
Don’t throw stones (people that think it’s awful to get both) but I am going to try for both, just to try to ensure that we get one. This will occur 5/31, fates willing, and I’ll report back. I’ll also be getting FEA and Remy the same morning.
I fully expect none of it to be successful (Eeyore syndrome?), but I am hopeful some of it will. Need some luck/magic. We shall see
I know a lot of people hated BG with Rise but I loved it. I would rather know before I head to the park if I’m going to get to ride or not instead of waiting in a queue for 4 hours and then not get to ride.
We are there that day also! Good luck to us both!!
What is BG1?
Search the La Cava threads. There is an entire thread dedicated to it.
Any chance that Remy will go to a LL instead of an ILL? If every other park has just one ILL until August, is it possible that Remy could switch? I’m hoping but maybe this is just wishful thinking.
I doubt it. But it’s possible. Just have to wait and see.
I think they’ll wait a bit longer before making Remy part of Genie+. But it will happen eventually, IMO.
I never got to do the remy VQ, did they require a park pass for that, or was there a 2 pm drop as well?
You had to have a park reservation to get a BG. They had a 1pm drop, I believe, but it, too was for those with an APR for Epcot.
